Representatives from craft breweries from across the province have recently received the prestigious Prudhomme Beer Sommelier certification.
The Prudhomme Beer Certification Program is Canada’s only beer education program that provides a well structured, unbiased look at the world of beer.
All of the participants successfully completed the intensive Level 3 Sommelier certification which gives each graduate the knowledge and ability to facilitate beer training to licensed establishments, colleagues working at breweries and consumers wishing to understand more about beer.
Having 18 new beer sommeliers in our breweries thoughout the province will considerably enhance the consumer experience in our breweries and at our events. This will allow us to train others and provide expertise to colleagues.
The Craft Brewers Association of Nova Scotia partnered with the Government of Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Community College to provide financial support for the program. We will be working with breweries to bring even more training opportunities for our exceptional staff in the coming months.
